The arrest came days after the police came under fire from the DP, who accused them of not doing their jobs properly.
Ruto expressed displeasure with investigative authorities after the National Police Service issued a statement that the violence in his rally was caused by internal conflict as his supporters fought over the distribution of mobilisation funds. His handlers, however, insisted that the melee was premeditated and planned by his rivals.
Political leaders including Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga, Amani National Congress Party leader, Musalia Mudavadi, condemned the attack on Ruto.
Odinga further denied any involvement in the fracas. Speaking during an interview with a local radio station, the former Premier refuted claims that he had sponsored the chaos distancing himself and his party from the incident.
"I am not a kid to go and organise people to throw stones at Ruto, why would I do that? Ruto is beneath me," the ODM leader stated.
Ruto, who was on a three-day-visit to Nyanza region, was forced to cancel yet another rally, this time in Migori, after the gathering turned chaotic.
The youth who were against being addressed by the area governor Okoth Obado, chanted anti-Obado slogans as they expressed disappointment in his performance. They further engaged in a violent altercation leading to the postponement of the meeting.
On Monday, members of the Migori Matatu Owners Association demanded an area member of parliament to give them their share of Ksh500,000 given to them by Ruto during his visit to the county.Deputy President William Ruto during his campaign trail in Homa Bay on November 11.The Standardstandardviolence fire arrest
